“Pings” Archive Available

ping.jpgPINGS springs directly from the geographical distance between two collaborators. Working from their locales Simon Whitehead & Barnaby Oliver explore the physical space between them through rivers and air and a range of other terrains with their own qualities, such as the web, phone, post, and less tangible links of memory and synchronicity. An ongoing project archive is now available on the website. You can subscribe to PINGS as a podcast / RSS 2 feed from the website. And view the exchanges between the two as webpages.

NMR Commission: “BliK” by Roberto Osorio-Goenaga

blik_300.jpgBliK an interactive installation and networked musical composition method based on collaborative “Web 2.0” principles. The composer / participant types directives / keywords – referencing one of the LEMUR ModBots – into a blog post to create a musical score. The LEMUR ModBots are a set of single-function percussive bots that work as a percussion ensemble. They reside at LEMURplex in Brooklyn, New York. Some are scrapers, some are shakers, some strike different surfaces. They each have their own name, for instance, “bucket” and “shake.” By typing “bucket shake shake shake,” into a blog post, the user causes both bots to improvise algorithmically, with the shake being 3 times more present in the section than the bucket. The user controls the tempo by typing keywords such as ‘fast’, ‘slow’, and ‘medium’. Continue reading
